Where & Why?
Implementation of a temporary 50mph speed limit on the A4042 from Edlogan Way Roundabout to Court Farm Roundabout as an interim mitigation measure to the risk presented by the life expired central reservation barriers.
Replacement of the central reservation barriers.
The temporary 50mph speed limit will remain in place until the life expired central reservation barriers are replaced. When the barriers are replaced the speed limit will return to the national speed limit for the road.
The design for the barrier replacement is progressing. The replacement of the barriers from Cwmbran to Pontypool is anticipated to commence in 2020/21 with the other sections to follow.
